Button, Button, I have toooo MANY Buttons!

I was cleaning out a "supply box" in my office and came across all these old buttons!

So believe it or not I was actually sorting them... yes, yes I know!
As I age I think that I am exhibiting signs of OCD and ADD.

My hubby is a little concerned... to say the least...

Anyway... I was sorting away and looked over at my desk and the lighting was so perfect that I felt obligated to capture the moment. Is this a distraction?
Or just being creative and free spirited? LOL
Did I mention this was the Saturday that at one time I was washing, drying and folding laundry, cleaning the house, blogging, and sorting buttons?

The buttons still aren't sorted.... but the laundry and house are clean.

This is Sweet Daughter's high school picture. She has
decided to go on to law school in August.
I will miss her so much but I'm so proud of her.
Love you Big Girl!

Your pictures are so sweet, Liz. I love buttons, too and not only do I save the extras, I buy them up at thrift stores. I have never even made anything with buttons. Maybe I should try to come up with something creative!

Congratulations on your daughter going in to law school. I wish her the very best!

Love the paris planter and how the light is coming through the window. So pretty. Sorting buttons is a big job, you do have a lot, but you always create such beautiful things. I know you will use them all. Hugs, Marty

Hi Liz,
Very sweet picture of your daughter. You will hear from her often I am sure, daughters are that way. Your little bird bath picture is beautiful, very distracting for sorting buttons for sure! Glad everything else got done though.
